I always liked Pulaski more. I think she was a far better fit then Dr Crusher whose character seemed too aloof and serious. Dr Pulaski was more old school Star Trek serious but fun character, she would have fit in well with Kirk's Enterprise and Picards. I can picture her and McCoy being best of friends if she had been on TOS and if it was said "oh thats his granddaughter" on TNG I would have bought it. Maybe because Muldaur played in TOS that I always liked her more. Also The Child is one of my favorite episodes outside the Borg episodes.
